Our story begins where many good legends do, in the stunning South Island of New Zealand. Journey back in time with us to 1853, when lush flora ruled the land, native fauna filled the air and the epic trails of today were yet to be blazed.
A pioneering explorer by the name of Nathanael Chalmers required the expert assistance of a local guide to lead him through the wilderness. What he found was a legendary story-teller and like-minded adventurer – Reko. We are delighted to bring you ‘REKO Private Guides’. A celebration of a legend. A continuation of an ethos to share, respect and preserve our unique environment, culture and history. An opportunity for keen explorers just like you to create your own worthy tale here in Wanaka & Queenstown.
